The use of XML to express a historical knowledge base
Since conventional historical records have been written assuming human readers, they are not well-suited for computers to collect and process automatically. If computers could understand descriptions in historical records and process them automatically, it would be easy to analyze them from different perspectives. In this paper, we review a number of existing frameworks used to describe historical events, and make a comparative assessment of these frameworks in terms of usability, based on deep cases of Fillmore s core grammar. Based on this assessment, we propose a new description framework, and have created a microformat vocabulary set suitable for that framework. Categories and Subject Descriptors H.2.3 [Languages]: Data description languages General Terms Experimentation Keywords historical knowledge representation, XML, RDF, microformats
